Puppy Parlor Lies to a Judge

Publication/Event date: 2013-12-10
Publication name: Lisle Patch
URL for more info: http://lisle.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/puppy-parlor-lies-to-a-judge
Summary:
Tammy Coglianese, owner of Puppy Mill Parlor recently had a protester served with a restraining order.  She lied to a judge to get it.  While Coglianese, her employees, and friends lie - to the Lisle Police, Lisle’s Mayor, Village Manager, Trustees, the Dept of Agriculture, and potential customers - and get away with it; lying to a judge is a different story.

Real Horror Here Folks...

Publication/Event date: 2013-10-30
Publication name: Lisle Patch
URL for more info: http://lisle.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/real-horror-here-folks
Summary:
Little Shop Of Horrors,  Puppy Mill Parlor in Lisle.  The back room is filled with dogs in cages that never go outside.  Ever.  The screaming alone in this place would make any person’s skin crawl.  I heard it just last week when a kid, oh around 15 years old, had the back door open.   Imagine how scared the dogs are.  How much blood has been wiped up in that back room?   How many dead dogs have been in that back room?   They have scary days everyday.   Everyday is a nightmare.  Everyday is worse than yesterday.  Everyday is Halloween for them.

Puppy Parlor

Publication/Event date: 2013-08-23
Publication name: Lisle Patch
URL for more info: http://lisle.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/puppy-parlor?a_dgi=aolshare_facebook
Summary:
As many know, Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) of Chicago, protests the Puppy Parlor in Lisle on daily basis. The following is a short video of the backroom of Puppy Parlor with pictures taken from the Department of Agriculture. It's quite disturbing, but this is why the CAPS group is out at Ogden and Main in Lisle, on a daily basis to stop the abuse of the poor dogs and educate the public regarding puppy mills. Puppy Parlor was in the top 100 worst puppy mills in America by the Humane Society of the United States. Puppy Parlor was the only store in the country on the list. Please see the link below:

Summary:
Thank you everyone who attends our protests daily and to the Lisle residents who have joined us! I just have to share what two strangers said to me this week. “We were going to go in Johnny’s to sit outside and have something to eat, but when we walked by Puppy Parlor, my wife had a sneezing fit. We didn’t understand, but then seen all that stuff outside, looked at it and she had to get in the car and use her inhaler. She’s very sensitive and allergic to mold.”

Protest Puppy Mill Parlor

Publication/Event date: 2013-06-23
Publication name: Lisle Patch
URL for more info: http://tinyurl.com/mlgyy3x
Summary:
Thank you everyone for your continued support to educate the public on The Puppy Mill Parlor!  We could protest forever, but we could not do as much damage as Tammy Coglianese did to herself last night on the Lisle Patch.  I tried to put some of her comments here, but they were so vulgar, the Patch rejected my posts.  Here is the link:
 
http://lisle.patch.com/groups/announcements/p/protest-puppy-parlor-in-lisle?ncid=newsltuspatc00000010
 
I hope the Lisle City Council and The Chamber Of Commerce are proud to support the Puppy Mill Parlor and Tammy Coglianese.  Wow, is all I can say.  Please join us next Saturday at Noon to educate the public on this horrific pet store.  If anyone has been sold a sick or dying dog, please visit www.caps-web.org and fill out a pet store complaint form.  Thank you!

Puppy Parlor Protest

Publication/Event date: 2013-06-03
Publication name: Lisle Patch
URL for more info: http://lisle.patch.com/groups/announcements/p/puppy-parlor-protest
Summary:
Thank you to all the people who educated the public on Puppy Mill Parlor this Saturday! One potential customer went to West Suburban Humane Society, and two people stopped to tell us their stories of the dogs they bought from Tammy Coglianese. No papers were given to both of these people, so they had no idea where their dogs came from. If you have been sold a sick or dying dog from this store, please visit www.caps-web.org and fill out a Pet Store Complaint Form. The picture of the sign is a Petco sign they most likely got from a dumpster. Join us this Saturday from Noon till 2:00 in a peaceful protest to stop puppy mills. We have plenty of signs and brochures. Thank you!
